Wanderlust Playlist 8 – Top 20 of 2013

2013 was a year of many many many releases and, of course, it’s rather hard choosing the crème de la crème from so many, a task that often falls to us bloggers right in the very last month of every year. 2013 was also a year where, more than ever, we saw the proliferation of the EP, the single, and the maxi single. Many bands jumped on the wagon of modern trends to release bits of music a bit at a time, while others caked it on in traditional style full-length releases. The following list is my list of faves for the year 2013, regardless of the length of such releases – quality not quantity, you know?
